# IF Matrix - Distributive (Fan-out)

ETL has a broad** IF Switch** Matrix and IF Router range for Satellite communications, including the hot-swap NiGMa **IF Matrix** which is used for many high resilience high performance applications and smaller more application-specific IF Routers which are used in cruise ships, broadcast relay stations, and smaller broadcast functions.

**Non-blocking:** this means any input can be routed to any output.

In general our solid state (L-band) matrices are non-blocking.**Full Fan-out Matrix **(or fully distributive or splitting matrix): any input can be routed to any output. One input can be routed to many outputs. Each output can only have one input. Tends to be more RX.

The architecture of all of these smaller **IF Matrix** products are very similar, but the 2U, 3U and 4U, units are generally not hot swap. All of the range has input splitter cards and output switch cards, dual redundant PSU's and a CPU. There is a variety of** IF Matrix** local control panels, defined by customer requirements. Remote control is via serial or ethernet ports in general.

Some of the IF Routers have hot swap power supplies.

The 16x16 modules can be linked together to form larger systems such as 16x32 or 32x16 matrices.
